Bearded Theory Festival releases limited number of day tickets

Festival Crowd Header

Due to exceptional demand from local residents, and those less willing or able to camp in Derbyshire during May, Bearded Theory Festival have announced that a limited number of day tickets for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday have been made available.

With each day featuring over 50 artists, alongside internationally renowned headliners, Reverend & The Makers & New Model Army (Friday) Asian Dub Foundation (Saturday) and Levellers (Sunday), day tickets provide more than 12 hours of family friendly festival music and entertainment for less than the cost of many gigs. Adult Day Tickets are £37.50, Children’s tickets from £5 (under 5’s can attend free). A family day ticket for 2 Adults and 2 Children is just £80.

‘Bearded’ is set in the grounds of the stunning National Trust property, Kedleston Hall near Derby. This year features our best ever line-up, and with hundreds of artists performing across 5 stages, there is music and entertainment to suit all ages and tastes. 

Bearded Theory isn’t just all about the bands though. Whether it is the festival’s stunning location, the Thornbridge Brewery-run bars serving a fabulous quality selection of ales and other refreshments, the extensive selection of independent food traders, market and craft activity stalls or immersing the little ones in the magical world of the acre-sized Angel Gardens Children’s area, there is always something for all to see and do.

One of the biggest highlights of the weekend is the annual World Record Attempt for the Greatest Number of People Wearing False Beards. Taking place on Sunday just after the performance by Australian Musical-Comedy sensation, The Beards (who will also co-host the record attempt), the event brings everyone at the festival (and their false beards) together, and is always huge amounts of fun. With the biggest audience ever expected for Bearded Theory 2013, confidence is high that we will smash the record we set last year!

Bearded Theory is just weeks away, taking place between 17th – 19th May so head over to to check out all the info, the full line-up, and details on how to get tickets without delay.
